Sauk Mountain Dazzled

It was so beautiful on Sauk Mountain yesterday that I teared up from the sheer dazzling wonder of it. The wildflowers were amazing – Indian paintbrush, and tiger lillies, and daisies – and the air was scented with that sagey alpine smell that I’ve only ever smelled in the mountains. A marmot was whistling his song, and the sound of laughter echoed through the hills as a group of about a dozen friends and their mascot, Sadie, worked their way up the switchbacks. It was a perfect hike in every single way.
